Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have announced the latest expansion for Rise of the Tomb Raider, Blood Ties, will be heading to Xbox One and PC in time to celebrate Tomb Raider’s 20th Anniversary.
Blood ties will bring a number of new gameplay modes, as well as the titular story chapter, based around Lara and the infamous Croft Manor. After being served with a letter contesting her claim to her childhood home, Lara must prove that she is the rightful heir. The new expansion includes “Lara’s Nightmare” mode, seeing Lara pitted against hordes of the undead as she investigates the evil haunting Croft Manor.
As well as both “Blood Ties” and “Lara’s Nightmare”, players will now be able to raid tombs with a friend in a new co-op expansion to the endurance mode. This new mode tasks players with gathering food and fuel to survive the harsh wilderness by day, and deathly assailants by night.
Finally, to celebrate Tomb Raider’s 20th Anniversary, there will be five unique Lara Croft skins and outfits inspired by Tomb Raider III.
Blood Ties will be available on 11th October 2016, and will be included in the Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass.
